Samsung seeks to patent new internet watch
Samsung Galaxy Gear described as a wearable digital electronic device
Samsung has applied for US and South Korean trademarks for a watch that connects to the internet.
Samsung described Samsung Galaxy Gear as a wearable digital electronic device in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle in its application to the US Patent and Trademark Office.
A month earlier, it applied for a Samsung Gear trademark in South Korea.
In May Samsung registered design patents in South Korea that show a wristwatch with a flexible display.
The trademark filings are the latest sign that global technology companies are racing to apply mobile technology to wearable products such as watches and glasses.
